Wine Story
2018 CGR Bordeaux Supérieur is a perfect expression of Entre-Deux-Mers terroir, which is the largest sub-region of Bordeaux. Harvested from a vineyard at the junction of the Garonne and Dordogne rivers, this wine was produced using the traditional method and fermented in stainless tanks. Bordeaux Supérieur wines are intended to mean what the word implies – that these wines are “superior” to standard AOC Bordeaux wines.
Tasting Notes
A rich, full-bodied red with aromas and flavors of ripe black fruits, hazelnut, and a hint of coffee. This wine utilizes all five grape varieties from Bordeaux, showcasing moderate tannins and excellent acidity followed by a slightly smoky, spicy, lingering finish.
Pairings
Enjoy with rich, sauced dishes, any red meat or game, or as a hearty standalone.
